Keith Flint on the Versace menswear catwalk on Sunday night

IS The Prodigy's Keith Flint the new muse of Donatella Versace? Having taken on Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera as her fashion protégés in the past, it seems that Donatella wanted something a little rougher this season. Flint, who escorted the blonde designer to the AmFar AIDS gala dinner in Cannes last month, and his band took to the catwalk between the Versace and Versus menswear presentations on Sunday night to scream and shout and generally misbehave - apparently in an effort to garner as much publicity for their forthcoming album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, as for the collections themselves. And the audience, including a svelte Catherine Zeta-Jones who had picked a black halterneck gown for the occasion, loved it. "I love this Prodigy thing," said Uomo Vogue editor in chief, Anna Dello Russo. "I love loud music and that crazy man. It's very of the moment." And Keith himself, who apparently almost broke a leg during rehearsals for the energetic, at times almost pornographic, performance, clearly enjoyed himself. "Milan smells of style and sex," he said after the show. "I like to bring the ugly to the beauty." (June 29 2004, AM)
